JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri Senate committee has endorsed a 1-cent sales tax increase to fund transportation projects.
   
The proposed constitutional amendment passed the House earlier this month. It was adopted by the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on Thursday with a 6-1 vote.
 
 If passed by the full Senate, the measure would head to the November ballot for voter approval. The tax is estimated to generate $800 million annually and $8 billion over its 10-year lifespan.
 
 The lone "no" vote on the Senate panel was Republican Sen. John Lamping, who led the fight against similar legislation last year. He says Republicans are sending a mixed message by raising sales taxes, while also passing an income tax cut this year.
 
Supporters say the tax is necessary for Missouri to maintain its highway system.

(Joplin, MO)  --  Joplin officials say some safe rooms to protect residents during storms are expected to open in the next few weeks.
Joplin school officials say final inspections will be conducted within a few days at community safe rooms at Cecil Floyd, Stapleton, McKinley and Eastmorland elementary schools and at Junge Field.
 
The district's director of construction, Mike Johnson, says the remaining safe rooms - at Jefferson, Royal Heights, Kelsey Norman, Duenweg, Columbia and West Central elementary schools and at Joplin High School are expected to be ready by the fall.
 
The Joplin Globe reports all the safe rooms will be open to residents who live within a 5-minute walk and a half-mile drive. They have an average capacity of 1,000 to 1,500 people.

WASHINGTON, Mo. (AP) - An investigation continues after an eastern Missouri deputy shot and killed a dog.
The Washington Missourian reports that Franklin County deputies went to a home on Monday to serve a search warrant. Sheriff Gary Toelke says they had been to the home many times before for various crimes.
 
Deputies had a search warrant, and when no one answered the door, they tried to enter through a window. Toelke says an aggressive dog charged at the deputy, who sprayed the animal with pepper spray.
 
A woman inside the home came forward and was told to secure the dog. Instead, the dog allegedly charged at one of the deputies, who fired a shot that killed the animal.
